Copenhagen Comics is almost here!

Guys! It’s finally time for DK’s largest comics festival.
This weekend, hooray!

I have teamed up with my studio Kulkælderen and this I where you can find me 90% of the weekend. Our table is HERE (sorry about the tiny map, luckily Øksnehallen is not that big).

Besides from that it’s the same procedure as the other years.
I try to sell you things.

In this case 3 A4 prints. I made 50 of each, and I will get my webshop back up and running if (when, let’s be honest) they don’t sell out.
300 kr at the festival, 350 kr online.

I will bring some original drawings too – mostly from the StineStregen.dk-years. Write a me comment if you have a specific request.

Besides from that I will do FREE doodles for anyone that shows up, like always. It’s a “THANK YOU FOR READING MY STUFF I LOVE YOU” thing, so it will be speedy lil’ StineStregen drawings and not family portraits or entire colored book pages. I know some of you feel a little shy about this showing up and asking without buying – but I promise you: it’s cool.
I love doing the doodles and when people add “I love cats like you, can I have a cat in my doodle?” or “I am as bad at yoga as you, will you draw something yoga?” it’s just wonderful to know that you actually read my stuff and that I can give something back. Promise! If you want it on a specific kind of paper or in your own sketch book, feel free to bring it. Otherwise I will bring paper and pens.

I will also be selling my book Kærestesorg. If you think it all sounds a little busy at the studio’s table, consider showing up at Cobolt‘s stand saturday at 16 – 17 where I will be signing the book next to someone a lot more famous and there will be time to make a sweet doodle in your book.

Also, I will be participating in a sketch battle sunday from 13.30-14.20. These battles are usually really fun to look at, pictures here are from Svendborg Graphic.

I went to Svendborg Graphic a week ago, brining only original drawings for sale and quite a bit of nerves.

Going through so many of my old drawings to find the best ones to sell really made me miss doing the everyday drawings and ramblings. I will make an effort to do everyday stuff again, I think.

I had two jobs as a guest at Svendborg Graphic. First the live drawing/interview Ask Me About Everything. Audience would hand me notes with questions and I would draw an answer live in a couple of minutes. Questions would range from “Why does my son have such short legs?” to “If time travel is possible does that mean there is no free will?” and also some easier ones I could actually answer. It sold out and the audience was focused and excited, and it was just the perfect crowd. Loved it.

The second job was a Sketch Fight Night and it was a lot of fun too. Mostly because my team WON!

The rest of the festival was spent at Creators Alley trying to sell original drawings. It was a very very quiet place. The entire sunday at the festival was spent chatting with Peter Madsen of Valhalla fame about his new house and where to put all the books. He usually has a line of crazy excited fans, so I think maybe the festival hid that alley a bit too well. Anyway, that’s what I told myself when I was dragging half of my drawings back home unsold. But who cares? The festival shows great promise, and I surely had a good time. Thanks to everyone who showed up to say hi – I hope to see you all again.
